Water Survival Box aid is being sent to:  YEMEN


To maximise its effectiveness Water Survival Box aid is airlifted to its destination. But due to Covid-19 pandemic and the restrictions placed upon the international transporting of freight, on this occasion we teamed up with Jubilee Outreach Yorkshire. With their assistance our boxes on this rare occasion were sent in containers by sea.



Type of disaster: CONFLICT




Since March 2015 - war has put 24 million Yemeni men, women and children in need of humanitarian assistance. Cholera is widespread and emergency levels of people needing clean water, toilets and hand washing facilities are widespread. 5 years on, the people of Yemen remain in the worst humanitarian crisis in the world

Each box contains an Aquafilter pump and health and hygiene items, stainless steel kitchen set, basic shelter, simple tools, and other necessary household items. The Aquafilter pump supplied in each box when attached to the box provided can then be filled with dirty water. When manually pumped through the pumps filter it is able to deliver 10 litres of safe drinking water per person each day and will provide for a family of five for up to five years



The container is due in Aden on October 20th- just return to this page, to follow further updates.

Awaiting confirmation that the ship transporting Water Survival Boxes has docked.

Giving this family and families like them hope for the future
